Gastown Neighbourhood Coalition

I stumbled across a website today that opposes the planned soccer stadium in Vancouver’s Gastown district.

The Gastown Neighbourhood Coalition opposes the Vancouver Whitecaps’ new stadium plans for a number of reasons:

What interests me about the coalition is the fact that there isn’t any mention of who created the group or who its members are, only:

“A group of like-minded business people and residents has recently formed the Gastown Neighbourhood Coalition.”

I’m guessing that a few of the waterfront landowners/developers have started this because the creation of a stadium would impede the future possibility of turning Gastown’s waterfront into a Yaletown-style redevelopment, as is stated in the Waterfront Access area of their website:

A better option would be a residential development similar to Yaletown or Coal Harbour that could reconnect the community to the waterfront”

I would love to know who these people are. Do you know?

UPDATE: has some pictures of the area and a perspective of someone who’s new to town.
